RAY,
THANKS FOR THE WELCOME! I FIGURE YOU'RE 59 AND I'M 68. THATS A LOT OF YEARS PLAYING WITH OLD CARS. HOWEVER IT'S KEPT ME OUT OF THE BARS AND OFF THE STREETS (UNLESS I HAD TO ANSWER A CHALLENGE) AND LOTS OF OTHER BAD THINGS I'M SURE. I JUST PURCHASED WHAT I BELIEVE WILL BE MY LAST ROD. 50 FORD COUPE WITH 289/C4 AND OTHER UPGRADES. I LIKE THE OLD FLATS, THEIR EXPENSIVE TO BUILD AND YOU BETTER HAVE SPARE PARTS ON BOARD IF YOU WANT TO GO FAR! NAPA HAS QUIT CARRYING THOSE.
I AM HOPING TO ADD POWER STEERING AS I HAVE A BAD SHOULDER AND NEED SURGERY NOW. NO SENSE TO MAKING THINGS WORSE. I JUST PARTED WITH A 48 CHEV SUBURBAN WITHOUT IT AND BESIDES, I WANTED SOMETHING A LOT SMALLER. I'M HOPING I CAN DETERMINE THE BEST OPTION TO DO THE CONVERSION. I HAD A 49 WITH THE MANUAL VOLVO BOX AND IT SUCKED AS WELL. THE POWER ONE WAS WAY TOO BIG. I HAVE HEARD BUT NOT SEEN STORIES ON USING A LATE 80s-MID 90s ISUZU PICKUP BOX OR POSSIBLY A TOYOTA PICKUP BOX (NOT SURE OF THE YEARS) AND IT ALSO SEEMS SOME ARE USING THE RACK AND PINION FROM AN EARLY CHEV CAVALIER!
I'M OPEN TO ALL POSSIBILITIES AND WOULD LIKE TO GET IT DONE SOON.
YHANKS, HERB

Post your question in the Steering and Suspension -steering-brakes forum (CLICK HERE) and you will get a lot more responses than here in the "Introduce yourself" forum.

This is where you post to say "HELLO!" but for specific questions if you post in the specific forums you will get a lot more responses because people don't look in this forum for questions, they look for introductions.
